I just adjusted my cylinder bearings with great care and find that now the rail sweepers, the cow-pusher things that are meant to keep the rails clean, are dragging.  Should I adjust these or just remove them?  Any advice?

  1. Yes, you should be able to adjust. If the blades or shoes, depending on the model, are worn out and replacements aren’t available, then remove them. In either case you’ll likely need to wipe the bed bearers and cylinder bearers with a slightly oiled rag before each work day.
